UND’s Energy and Environmental Research Center Secures Over $4 Million for Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology

The University of North Dakota’s Energy and Environmental Research Center (EERC) has received a $4,200,000 grant to work on developing commercially-viable hydrogen cell technology. This project aims to lower the required operating temperature of O-SOECs, which could improve cell and stack durability. Additionally, it could make it possible to use less expensive steel alloys for system construction without sacrificing efficiency.

In October, the Department of Energy (DOE) awarded $925 million to EERC for their Heartland H2 Hub project in collaboration with Marathon Petroleum, TC Energy, and Xcel Energy. Senator Cramer supported EERC’s application on behalf of Heartland Hydrogen Hub (HH2H) LLC to secure funding from the DOE’s Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations in order to establish the hub.
